At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. But he said, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea. – Luke 4:42-44

When we come to Christ we all have agendas. We see the goodness of Jesus and we look for Him. Then we want to live in those experiences and have our needs met. But Jesus was sent to bring the good news to other places and peoples.

When we have experienced the goodness of God, don’t be surprised when that goodness takes us beyond our comfort zones and into a waiting world. God’s heart is to propel you and I into our workplaces and communities, proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom through our words and deeds.
